Christian has not been medically cleared to compete by WWE in years, but that didn’t stop Randy Orton from hitting him with a punt kick this week on Raw.
It all began at the top of the show when Christian confronted Orton and ended up getting challenged by “The Viper” to an unsanctioned match in the main event.
Later in the show, “Captain Charisma” accepted the challenge. Ric Flair attempted to convince him out of it at one point as well, but Christian refused.
At the end of the show, both Orton and Christian made their way to the ring. The two were then interrupted by Flair, who once again pleaded with the retired wrestler to leave the ring. Christian continued to deny the request though and the bell rang for the match to begin.
Ric Flair then surprised Christian by hitting him with a low blow from behind. Orton followed that up with a punt kick, before covering his opponent for the pinfall victory. Christian was then taken away from the ring on a stretcher after Orton did some trash talking over his fallen body.
Watch the punk kick to Christian below.
WHAT. JUST. HAPPENED?!
